Comparing Wrestlers to Footballers

I'm sure this has been done somewhere down the line before. But, in terms of roughly basing it on how their careers panned out mixed in with their ability...here goes...

Steve Austin ~ Diego Maradona. Was arguably the GOAT at his peak. Carried Argentina and Napoli to great successes, in the mid-late 80s. Sound familiar to Austin with mid-late 90s?

Randy Orton ~ Cristiano Ronaldo. Consistently at the top and among the best, but never quite the number one. Accomplished a hell of a lot.

The Rock ~ Ronaldinho. At his peak his star shone brighter then most could ever dream, but quickly dissappeared (The Rock's case went Hollywood).

Ric Flair ~ Paolo Maldini. Consistently class, for an age.

The Undertaker ~ Paul Scholes. Much like the above, but a slight step down in ability and (arguably) accomplishments.

Triple H ~ Ryan Giggs. Underrated at their peaks from today's society, both consistenly highly successful and good in ring/on pitch talents. Never quite made it to the absolute top.

MVP ~ Adriano. Had all the tools to make it to the top, but circumstances unfortunately thought otherwise. Both had success for a brief period in their prime, though.


Any more? Would love to hear them as these are a few that popped into my head

Re: Comparing Wrestlers to Footballers

So Shawn Michaels is Messi--the Icon, the Main Event, the Show Stoppa, the One-Man Gang, the Headliner?

John Cena is who?

Pele = Hulk Hogan

Ric Flair = Platini. Gone insane as they aged, or in Platini's case--never an administrator.

Triple H = Christiano Ronaldo. Every one dislikes/hates him for his attitude, right? The amount of big matches Ronaldo's gone missing sounds reminiscent to the amount of main event flops Hunter has had. Also, the amount of classics they've had, it's similar.

Ulfric Stormcloak; not a racist, not a megalomaniac, not a savage, but a hero with heart & ambition.

All hail to Ulfric you are the High King
In your great honor we drink and we sing
We're the children of Skyrim and we fight all our lives
And when Sovngarde beckons everyone of us dies

We drink to our youth to the days come and gone
For the age of oppression is now nearly done

Re: Comparing Wrestlers to Footballers

I wasn't comparing Messi to Cena because of their skill.

It was more like "you cannot stop either of them" kind of compassion.
